Calling all creatives! Don’t miss this amazing event with creative coach and artist Dr. Merideth Hite Estevez!

Feeling stuck or unfulfilled as an artist? Dr. Estevez, a creative coach and artist herself, can help. Her book “The Artist’s Joy” guides you to build a joyful and sustainable artistic practice, no matter your experience. Through self-reflection and practical tools, you’ll rediscover the joy in creating and silence the “tortured artist” within. Dr. Merideth Hite Estevez is a spiritual space-maker for artists as a writer, coach, educator, and performer. As an oboist, Merideth has performed with top orchestras in the US and abroad and has served on faculties of numerous universities and schools of music. Her education has taken her all over the world, including to Yale School of Music, a Fulbright Scholar to Germany, and The Juilliard School, where she received her doctorate in oboe.

As a coach, she has helped thousands of artists overcome creative block through her popular online creative recovery clusters and has served as an executive coach for all types of arts leaders, from major museum directors to deans of conservatories and art schools. She maintains a busy speaking schedule helping corporations and other organizations harness the power of creativity to heal and transform lives.

Dr. Estevez’s award-winning podcast, Artists for Joy, was in the top 250 podcasts in the US in the Self-Help category in January 2023 and is currently top 1.5% of podcasts worldwide. Her first book, “The Artist’s Joy: A Guide to Getting Unstuck, Embracing Imperfection, and Loving Your Creative Life,” debuts in Spring 2024 from Broadleaf Books.

When she’s not creating, you’ll find her enjoying a matcha latte in metro Detroit, Michigan, where she lives with her husband, Rev. Edwin Estevez, and their two children.
